One response to “Nuclear energy: the low carbon source to drive advanced industrial processes?”

    I am shocked to read about the British ‘greens’ who, despite the disaster in Japan, still say that nuclear power is the only alternative to fossil fuels.

    They should heed the words of Amory Lovins, the veteran environmentalist and energy analyst, who wrote, “Nuclear plants are so slow and costly to build that they reduce and retard climate protection. Here’s how. Each dollar spent on a new reactor buys about 2-10 times less carbon savings, 20-40 times slower, than
    spending that dollar on the cheaper, faster, safer solutions that make nuclear power unnecessary and uneconomic: efficient use of electricity, making heat and power together in factories or buildings (cogeneration), and renewable energy.”
